    I have been working at Juniper Networks

    Pros

    Some smart people and good information sharing online tools are decent to work with. The culture is a competitive one.

    Cons

    There has been a lot of changes in the staffing in the last 2 years, and the culture has changed quite a bit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The need to have more education programs for partners is essential. More online tools and resources should be made available to partners to empower them with ability to create sales and opportunities. The product feature velocity needs to be improved in areas where there is plenty of catchup needed.

    Pros

    Good people, good management, its'a a company that 's big enough to engage the large opportunities and small enough to care about the outcome.

    Cons

    Product range is still somewhat limited. Market penetration is getting better but needs work. Marketing doens't exist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some money on marketing - for every dollar you put in you'll get back three,... That's how CISCO does it.

    I have been working at Juniper Networks full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Many inside sales positions are just call rooms where the rep's make 100's of cold calls per day. Juniper partners each inside rep with 1 outside rep, both responsible for the same territory number. Inside reps are given SE support and are treated as valuable as the outside reps. Great stepping stone to outside sales.

    Cons

    The company is constantly changing products. We spend months working on strategies around specific products only to have them sold off. It creates an environment where people are afraid to purchase wondering what's next to go.

    Pros

    Overall very good journey, constantly something keeps changing here and there are new challenging goals set all the time and I learned and have lots of insights about Business while working as systems analyst role. Pays above average and ensure there is above average contribution from employees - win-win situation who wants to work more and get more.

    Cons

    work life balance may get off the whack and little tricky to maintain that. Cannot focus on formal training and improvement, employee learning and progress comes along by delivering more by working on more projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The employee development programs, training programs mostly goes unused as everyone is very busy here. It is made obvious that cost reduction comes before than a better working experience for the employees, taking a hit on the value of the company for some one working long here.
